Auther : Nourria N. El-Khoraphi

This study seeks to identify anxiety as a trait and as State of mind in the children of Kuwait martyrs and prisoners of war following the invasion, occupation and eventual liberation of Kuwait. The study covered 173 individuals, aged 14 to 16,98 of who were children of martyrs and 75 children of prisoners of war. Children were of both sexes, representing the society covered by the study.

In order to test the hypothesis of this study, the researcher used the Anxiety State – Trait list developed by Spilberger and arabised and adopted to the Kuwait environment by Dr. Aminal Kathim 1987. Analysis of the data produced the following results:

  1. write regard to the Anxiety Trait:

  1. There were no significant anxiety trait differences attributed to sex differences.
  2. There were significant anxiety differences between children of martyrs and children of prisoners of war, with the former showing a higher level of anxiety trait.
  3. There were no significant differences due to interaction between sex and parental status (children of martyrs and children of prisoners of war).                 * with regard to the Anxiety state:

  1. The study did not show any significant differences in the level of Anxiety State due to sex differences.
  2. There were significant differences between children of martyrs and children of prisoners of war, with the anxiety state being more pronounced in children of prisoners of war.
  3. There were no significant differences due to interaction between sex and parental status (children of martyrs and children of prisoners of war).

The researcher presents several recommendations, the most important of which being that the study should be conducted once again at a later stage, covering the same individuals, in order to determine the extent to which counseling sessions and the passage of time may have effected their state of mind.
